Gameday with Dan - Minnesota Wild



When: 7:00pm
Where: Consol Energy Center

Player to watch: Minnesota Wild
For the Wild, keep an eye on Cal Cutterbuck (I love that name). He currently is tied for the lead on the team with 12 goals along with Brett Burns. His nack for the enforcer end of the game is no secret, and he leads the team with 186 hits. Fun Fact: He grew a mustache in the month of November, it was so good it earned it's own Twitter feed and interview on NHL.com

Player to watch: Pittsburgh Penguins
For your Penguins, watch Evgeni Malkin, he currently has 34 points (15+19) on the season and is a plus 1. He left the ice early at today's morning skate with knee issues after he was taken down by Scott Gomez vs. MTL. He may play a smaller amount of minutes because of the knee and may not be 100%. Without Sidney Crosby, this is a bigger story and Geno needs to step up his game in his absence.
